Dark Rides

Your success depends on the ability to capture a guest’s attention, whether it is their first or last ride of the day. Martin Professional Lighting has a longstanding reputation in creating custom-designed, dynamic visual solutions that enhance theme parks, sports venues and concerts to keep people engaged and entertained whether they’re outdoors or on a dark (indoor) ride. Our innovative visual designs can give your ride a new identity depending on the time of day, which is why we approach each project from a unique perspective. Beyond enhancing aesthetics, we offer a variety of network delivery and automated control solutions to make it easier for staff to operate rides. These systems also make it simple to control your audio, video and lighting, and have the power to send maintenance alerts for measuring and reporting operational efficiencies.

HARMAN also offers multiple ways to manage the process of automating and ensuring delivery of safety messages and instructions. Our SVSi products from AMX can effortlessly provide audio or video playback of load instructions, while our IDX platform manages and logs audio messages. These tools not only allow for a safe guest experience, they also allow for an enhanced entertainment experience by providing consistent messaging that matches the themes of the ride.
